A Slice of Lime (Day 372)

Simple afternoon  blistering in lavender shadows 
book on the table  eyes drifting closed as you doze 

Your dreams flicker like bubbles rising in a glass 
and I cling to the side  a slice of lime my life preserver

It seems the ice melts more quickly as summers fly 
past those other people we used to be  though 

the woman who sells tomales from door to door in 
my neighborhood will tell you  it wasn’t always this way
